Unilateral Contact of Elastic Bodies (Moment Theory)

Boundary contact problems of statics of the moment (couple-stress) theory of elasticity are studied in the case of a unilateral contact of two elastic anisotropic nonhomogeneous media. A problem, in which during deformation the contact zone lies within the boundaries of some domain, and a problem, in which the contact zone can extend, are given a separate treatment. Concrete problems suitable for numerical realizations are considered.
